BLAZE'S "Gang Rags" Out Now!

on .



"The Zombie King Himself, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, has Risen Back from the Dead to Deliver Newest Album, Gang Rags, to the Juggalo Nation."

Farmington Hills, Michigan, June 22, 2010 - Psychopathic Records artist, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, has released his forth, full length album, Gang Rags, worldwide on June 22, 2010.

The Juggalos have a ton to be hyped up for with the Gang Rags album. For starters, it has been almost three years since Blaze's last release, so no more waiting! And, second, in addition to tracks that are reminiscent of Blaze's usual throw back homage to the late ‘80s and ‘90s gangsta rap, listeners will be pleasantly surprised to hear some crazy, upbeat songs! The last and final, devastating detail is that Gang Rags is packaged with one of five exclusive bandanas: red, white, blue, green and black. That's right; the Juggalos are going to go crazy over trying to get their hands on all five bandanas!! Mike E. Clark and Violent J of Insane Clown Posse are responsible for the sharp production of Gang Rags. Violent J also lends his rap and writing skills on many tracks, including one where he is joined by his ICP partner, Shaggy 2 Dope. There are additional guest appearances by Kottonmouth Kings, ABK (Psychopathic Records), and the Dayton Family.

In support of Gang Rags, Blaze has some shows and in-store events lined up, and the schedules are found below:

All the money raised that night is being used to help pay for The Orbitsuns' upcoming tour of the UK starting on July 1st.

They will be performing at "many kick ass festivals across the pond" - folks can get details at http://ml2.myemail.com/webmail/webmail.cgi?cmd=url&xdata=~2-e54334fe44a5db61471ecc33fc848bb20584b1ead3e6a2c6d7ceaed4c6696c2e646574726f6974726f636b7265766965772e636f6d00&url=http!3A!2F!2Fwww.orbitsuns.com or myspace.com/orbitsuns.


Riding their tired old horses across Detroit, their saddlebags stuffed with bourbon, cigarettes, Coney Island hotdogs and worn Johnny Cash cassettes, are the Orbitsuns, the Motor City's finest purveyors of low down and dirty outlaw country. Summoning the spirits of all of their brethren, the Orbitsuns are as outrageous as Iggy, as blue collar as Seger, as dark as Alice, as revolutionary as the MC5 and as boundary crossing as the Kid.

This is country, folks, but not as you know it.

Front man Vinnie Dombroski is one of the most celebrated musicians to have emerged from the vibrant Detroit scene in the last twenty years. Dombroski made his name with alt-rock giants Sponge in the ‘90s, smashing into the charts with hits like "Plowed" and "Molly (16 Candles)".  That band is still a going concern, as are Dombroski's fetish-tinged industrial band Crud, proving that the singer is as prolific as he is talented.

As well as his work with Sponge and Crud, the charismatic front man played alongside Sean Kinney and Mike Inez of Alice In Chains and Chris De Garmo of Queensryche in the short-lived but exciting Spys4Darwin project. Dombroski is also a respected producer and session drummer, and he has sat behind the stool for artists like Eileen Rose, Don Was and Vivian George. Whatever project he is involved with at any time, Vinnie Dombroski only ever gives 100%, and never has that been truer than with the Orbitsuns.

It was during the early part of the new millennium when Dombroski discovered his talent for writing fire n' brimstone, honky-tonk hoe-down from Hell cow-punk music, and before long he found himself with a gun case full of songs that would shake the dust from the oldest Stetson, but wouldn't fit comfortably in either Sponge's or Crud's repertoire. The obvious solution was to form a new band entirely, one that could roam from dive bar to social club, avoiding the spit n' sawdust on the floors to bring the party to everyone from the hipsters to the ignored. The band, completed by Sir Tim Duvalier on guitar, Bob Hecker on bass and Jimmy Paluzzi on drums, are one of the hardest working in Detroit, and in this town that's really saying something.

Debut album Redneck Disco was released in 2003, simultaneously introducing the world to a band which had been honing its incendiary live show since its inception a couple of years before. That album, which was re-released in 2008 as Redneck Disco Revisited, featured such slabs of whisky-soaked Michigan mayhem as the self-explanatory "Long Line of Sinners", a dirty cover of Johnny Cash's "Boy Named Sue",  and "Haul Ass", the latter being the Orbitsuns' call to arms.

2006 saw the release of the band's second album, Dollars & Dice, a record that had the Orbitsuns picking up where they left off. "I love girls that swear", sings Dombroski on the song of the same name, confirming what their fans already suspected; the Orbitsuns are gloriously filthy and magnificently sleazy, and nobody would want them any other way.

Sir Tim Duvalier is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, and a master of the slide guitar. He has played with Detroit soul Queen Thornetta Davis and the Chisel Brothers, as well as award winning master blues man Chef Chris. He brings the twang to the Orbitsuns sound.

Bob Hecker has played with celebrated local bands like Sonic Blues and Larval, and it is he who supplies the Devil's own bass lines.

The rhythm section is completed by Jimmy Paluzzi, an original member of Sponge alongside Dombroski. After leaving Sponge, Paluzzi recorded an album for RCA records with Hoarse, a desert / stoner hard rock band, and played with the Fags, a power-pop group who made a few waves on both sides of the Atlantic.

Their live shows are less a simple concert and more an event, a party. That truth holds regardless of whether the band is playing in front of 4 people or 400.

It was their consistently incredible live performances, as well as two albums of perfectly executed outlaw country music, that encouraged Chicago's finest Cheap Trick and, later, veteran country artist David Allen Coe, to take the Orbitsuns out on tour.

2010 will see the release of the band's third studio album, First Drink of the Day. The subject matter will be familiar to fans of the band, with songs like "Speed and Alcohol", "Die With My Boots On" and "I'm Gettin' Sick of You" included, alongside a cover of "Seeds and Stems" by ‘60s Detroit band Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen.

In many ways, the Orbitsuns are the archetypal Detroit band. They have the grit to their noise that is associated with music from this region; they have simply transferred that same fire, that passion, into the cow-punk rodeo arena. These are experienced, respected musicians having the time of their lives. These are loveable deviants completely at ease with cowboy boots and bent Stetson hats. This is the greatest party band of the decade, capable of encouraging a maniacal hoe-down before bringing things back with a slow dance.

This is the Orbitsuns.

Get with the damned program.

It still blows my mind every time I hear my song on the radio and I can't wait to play it live for everyone who's been supporting me and calling and requesting it. The Truth is determined to show everyone that they belong on the radio and don't plan on going anywhere!" says Stone of his recent top-10 notch on WRIF's playlist.

At the St. Andrew's Hall show, fans can expect Stone to debut new songs from his forthcoming Atlantic records release.  "It was such a great experience to work with such world class musicians such as Audley Freed from the Black Crows and Robert Kearns front Lynyrd Skynyrd.  I can't wait for everyone to hear it, and I'm so proud of everyone involved", explains Stone.  Executive Produced by Kid Rock, the new disc features recordings with producers Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Kid Rock), John Fields (Pink, Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers), Brian Irwin and Marlon Young.  "It's gonna be hot!" enthuses Ty.
